Web Site Policy Document
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), along with other groups and standards bodies, has established technologies for creating and interpreting web-based content. These technologies, which are called 'web standards', are carefully designed to deliver the greatest benefits to the greatest number of web users while ensuring the long-term viability of any document published on the Web.
Designing and building with these standards delivers sites that are accessible to more people and more types of Internet devices. Sites developed along these lines will continue to function correctly as traditional desktop browsers evolve, and as new Internet devices come to market.
This site has been built using these standards as the basis for its construction. All pages validate as XHTML (either strict or transitional) and pass the Automated Verification tests (group 3) provided by the WIA. (Web Accessibility Initiative).
For further information about standards, see the Web Standards Project .
